I'm about 35 weeks now with baby #3 and I'm planning on having my two DDs at the birth this time. They'll have my friend there looking out for them if they get scared, etc. and I've planned some things like a new movie to watch, new markers for them to do art with, etc. to keep them distracted. We've also read "Hello Baby" (aka "Welcome with Love") about 100 times (My DD1 loves to yell "It's a boy!!" when the baby is born
), and a few months ago we watched Orgasmic Birth (or rather, they were around when I was watching it after borrowing it from my midwife), and I'm going to try to borrow that again.
But one thing I was thinking of last night, I was pretty into my own zone in active labor, just quiet and moaning with contractions, but then when I hit transition and started pushing I remember yelling that I couldn't do this anymore, stuff like that. Everyone else was really calm, and it didn't last very long before I realized what was going on and pushed the baby out
but I'm worried that's when they'll get scared if they've never seen that that can be normal. Any youtube videos I've seen the mamas are very quiet or there's music instead of real sound.
So, I come to you MDC mamas, asking if you know of any videos, youtube, DVD, whatever, that has a mama in labor making labor noises? Bonus if it's a waterbirth since that's what we're planning. And even if you don't have videos, and stories of how your kids handled the labor noises if they were at your birth?
